Welcome to the website for the Respiratory Pathogens Research Center Symposium (RPRC). The symposium is a full-day event, and will include keynote presentations, as well as short talks and an interactive poster session.

The Respiratory Pathogens Research Center (RPRC), which was established by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) in 2011, consists of a national network of scientists focusing on research that will lead to a better understanding of the complex interactions between respiratory pathogens, the immune system, and other genetic and environmental factors, how these interactions affect disease risk and severity, and developing new ways to treat or prevent these diseases. Ongoing studies in the RPRC focus on respiratory disease and immunity in infants, children, and adults. You can learn more about the RPRC by visiting our web page.

The broad themes of this symposium will be on Immunology, Viral and Bacterial Respiratory Pathogens, Vaccines, and Therapeutics.
